We recently visited the Island. It offers a fun day of snorkeling, relaxing on the beach, and hiking. It is not far from the mainland and you can return throughout the day. We used Captain Joe's Ferry which we enjoyed!

Captain Joe is made my day with his kindness when I took his ferry to charming Peanut Island. You can depend on him. Truly a captain of the sea.

According to seatemperature October seat temperatures near West Palm Beach range from about 84 degrees down to just below 81 degrees. Pretty nice, I'd say.
